Amrhamza,

:bigsmile:

Thanks for the feedback! And I should really keep an open mind like you! Some files that people say will be rejected may not be. I’m still open for input though!

Thanks again!

Hey all!

Before I submit these and assume monk-like patience as they go down the Graphic River review pipeline, I want to see whether or not you feel they would be approved. Share your opinions and let me know if you feel any changes are necessary.

henryhu,

Great! Now it’s time to see how well you will do with this particular item. I’ll wish you no luck because I’m sure you’ll create your own!

designsatnight,

It can be very frustrating to put a huge amount of thought, time and energy into a template; wait and wait and wait, and finally receive a rejection. To repeat that process multiple times can be even more frustrating.

But listen very carefully to this. Persistence is one of the keys to success. Do not let failure detour you from continuing forward towards realizing your goals. If you haven’t failed you’ve never tried anything new.

No need for any hostilities towards the reviewers or their processes. Getting rejected and/or approved is all part of the process. Expect it. Don’t assume success or failure when focusing on a project. Assuming nothing, and let what comes to you come.

What were some of the reasons behind your products’ rejections? Can you paste what the reviewers had to say?

Logomount,

Hmmm. I’m not sure what I’d do to this. I like what I’ve seen. I don’t see anything wrong with this at all.

Let me think, let me think…

Wow. Nothing comes to mind. Heh. You’ll probably want to look at logos that have been approved and see if you can find anything similar to yours. If I were a reviewer that would have been the only reason I would hard reject your item.

Hekia,

The only thing that comes to mind so far with this logo is trying to incorporate the main “windmill” shape into the word “maximum” or whatever else you can come up with for a word. The 4 rectangles making up the center of the main symbol at top look similar to an “x.” I’m guessing more integration between the word and symbol might make this work? Perhaps that will aid the reviewer in seeing it differently.

The design is very different from what I have seen. Simple, yet complex at the same time.

I’m not sure if I like font used for the “precision.” I’d stick with something that wasn’t cursive.

Another idea popped to mind!

Perhaps you can make the “Maximum” and “Precision” words the same font and have them circulating either the top and bottom of the main symbol, or the right and left of the main symbol. That would make them look much more integrated, and may change the reviewers opinion and way of looking at the entire thing.

henryhu,

Overlapping shapes are easy to create, but they can slow down the efficiency of the file. If you want to try minimizing the amount of shapes used you may want to try thinking about shapes in silhouettes. It’s a very different approach for many when it comes to art, but if you were to start off with a base color for not just a single rose pedal, but the entire area of the pedals, and then layer over your gradient mesh, it would reduce the file size tremendously. It’s a practice I use, but it can be difficult for some to cognate.

Give it a shot on your next vector work. This one seems too near completion for you to rework everything like that.

henryhu,

Hmmm… Here’s what I see and think. It looks as if you were going for a semi-realistic shading technique using gradient mesh? For something that is semi-realistic looking The piece as a hole looks “flat;” as in not 2.5D or 3D enough.

What I think makes this look flat is a lack of shadows being cast from higher pedals and leaves onto lower ones. The pedals themselves seem to be casting shadows on other pedals, but not on the leaves below them. The leaves don’t seem to be casting shadows on leaves below them as well.

I think the reviewer’s eyes and mind were getting mixed up between whether or not the vector should look entirely 2.5D or 3D vs just looking 2D. Hence the “The gradients could use some additional work.” Certain pedals look 3D while most of the leaves look 2D (specifically those towards the top of the graphic).

Hopefully some of that helps.

Pletikos,

It most likely will be approved. Can you show us with the Reviewer’s feedback was? Depending on what they said regarding your design being similar to older designs of yours, there may be elements that can be swapped, or the entire design may need to be reorganized.

Greetings,

I wanted to see what you all felt about an old flyer created for a client, and whether or not it would be usable for a Graphic River flyer template. Let me know what you think of the design and what might need to be tweaked:

FRONT:

REAR:

Thanks All,

- Nun Kwon
